While Nokia shocked the world by apparently ditching their Intel supported Meego OS for a partnership with Microsoft; it hasn’t managed to deter laptop manufacturers from including Meego with their latest releases. After Fujitsu launched the Meego powered MH330 earlier, Russian laptop company iRU is now releasing the world’s 2nd Meego laptop- the Intro 102.
The Intro 102 will be powered by an Intel Atom N450 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 160GB HDD, integrated graphics, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and an SD card slot. The netbook has a typical 10.1” display with a 1024x600 pixel resolution and unfortunately does not include an HDMI port or TV-out.
While the specs on this netbook are pretty unspectacular, iRU seems to be counting on Meego’s presence to help power sales. However, with Meego being untested and Nokia moving towards other ventures, users might not be in a hurry to fork over the cash. As of now there is no word on the netbook’s pricing, although a Windows 7 version has been available since early February for 245 Euros.
